Now some hardy Rotarians helped park cars at Drumlanrig Christmas Fair this weekend.

And a merry time we had with Santa, cyclists, and stall holders all.

BUT WHO WAS THIS FELLOW IN THE HAT?

 

 

It certainly helped him get close and personal with a very nice lady and the paparazzi were there to record the evidence.

He was promised it would be published and yes Gavin it did take me ages to get it off the ------- phone.

 

The song came from the 1880's and their copyright is acknowledged.

 

Now how I came to get this hat, 'tis very strange and funny
Grandfather died and left to me his property and money
And when the will it was read out, they told me straight and flat
If I would have his money, I must always wear his hat

CHORUS
"Where did you get that hat? Where did you get that tile?
Isn't it a nobby one, and just the proper style?
I should like to have one Just the same as that!"
Where'er I go, they shout "Hello! Where did you get that hat?"

If I go to the op'ra house, in the op'ra season
There's someone sure to shout at me without the slightest reason
If I go to a concert hall to have a jolly spree
There's someone in the party who is sure to shout at me

CHORUS

At twenty-one I thought I would to my sweetheart get married
The people in the neighbourhood had said too long we'd tarried
So off to church we went right quick, determined to get wed
I had not long been in there, when the parson to me said

CHORUS

I once tried hard to be M.P. but failed to get elected
Upon a tub I stood, round which a thousand folks collected
And I had dodged the eggs and bricks (which was no easy task)
When one man cried, "A question I the candidate would ask!" 

CHORUS

When Colonel South, the millionaire, gave his last garden party
I was amongst the guests who had a welcome true and hearty
The Prince of Wales was also there, and my heart jumped with glee
When I was told the Prince would like to have a word with me

CHORUS
